5.0 out of 5 stars Great cult book for kayakers 4 Jan 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Sort of rates alongside Nealy's cartoon books on kayaking. Corran is no dumb-ass despite his frequent misquotes in this book. Every remembered saying is pointed and reflects his knowledge of big water, honed by years of getting pounded in holes. OK so he's the bad boy of kayaking but he has done a lot to interpret the sport for nerds and weekend warriors. His "Riot Tribe" is a phenomenon in kayaking. The quotes in this booklet are sometimes funky, obscure, silly, but always thought provoking. A great campfireside booklet and great for (mis)quoting.

Contradictory and amusing, witty and sarcastic, Corran Addison, the bad boy of whitewater kayaking shares his wisdom with the rest of us. This book is a must for long shuttles and makes entertaining reading.

2.0 out of 5 stars A real sinker! 19 Mar 2001
By Dee Jay - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Ordered this for a present to my kayaking husband, and we were both puzzled and disappointed. I had anticipated more poetic and meaningful words of wisdom, so to open and find "Never leave on a road trip without a copy of 'Playboy'" was not a good start. There are a few good points of advice "The price you pay for a helmet is how much you value your head" - but that's it I suppose, if you want a book that is like a grown up boy scouts guide of the dos and dont's of kayaking this is the one for you!

3.0 out of 5 stars Corran Addison's little book of wisdom.... 13 Aug 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Fun if you can read it in the right perspective, i.e. if you're heavily into freestyle or extreme kayaking. E.g. the wisdom "it's better to die in your boat that it is to swim" should rather not be taken literally by beginning kayakers.... If you know a little about Corran's background, it's quite entertaining though!

1.0 out of 5 stars Truly dreadful 3 Jan 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Trite, immature, and lacking any really useful tips. Tips like "get an internet server for long trips" are technically incorrect and completely useless. This is an advice book written by someone who needs to grow up before he gives anyone advice. But it is completely in keeping with Corran's public image.
